I named myself after the first U2 tour that rolled around after I became a fan. Also, I think LoveTown gives off a nice tree hugging, peace loving hippie vibe heh

I've used this s/n since 1998 when I used to play on Mplayer. I still like it, so I keep using it.

This is an update on the lame reason for my name I gave earlier...and a very weird/true tale. Lately, I've been taking my love of hiking up a notch, going for the big mountains. We've got a big one just around the corner from my town called Marble Mountain. A few weeks back, I hiked to the top and noticed the hut there had its door open, and it was blowing back and forth in the wind. I went to close it, and noticed a copy of 'Blender' magazine on the table. Thom Yorke was on the cover. I've always been a distant fan of Radiohead, and a great appreciator of 'Ok Computer'. I often thought they were a band I could get into in a big way at some point; it's just that some other band from Ireland had a long-standing habit of demanding airtime.

Anyway, to make this blurb short, it was a beautiful day (no pun intended), and I sat on the steps next to the hut to read the Yorke interview. Two pages in, I read a quote from Bono, whom the magazine called for his two cents' worth. Describing the Radiohead front man, he said: "Thom is an angel singing about his devils. It's that duality -- the band is so tough, and yet his voice is so beautiful and fragile. Radiohead makes sacred music." (I just read the interview again, online, for quote accuracy.)

I thought it was pretty funny...the angel/devil thing, the fact the door was open in the hut, and the fact that I was listening to U2 on my mp3 player. Also, since reading that interview, I've completely dived into Radiohead, something I've wanted to do for a long time. They are a truly greaaaaaat band...

My name comes from a nickname Bono starting using for the Edge back during the Joshua Tree\Lovetown Tours. In a bootleg I have, Bono calls out the Edge's solo by calling him "Reggie The Dog". However, it always sounded to me like he called him "Reggie THEE Dog". I was always amused by the name, so I took it for my own here.

It's also an anagram of my name: Greg. Add and "i" and another "e" and there you have it!

I'm a writer and Axver is the last name of a few of my favourite characters that I've created. I still can't remember why I decided to use it as a screen name, but it's stuck and it's all I use online (except when I'm forced to have more than five characters, in which case I'm TheAxver or AmakAxver, Amak being my favourite of the Axvers).

And how did I create Axver as a last name? Not even I know. That's a mystery lost in time and all I can do is speculate on how my seven year old brain invented it.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I was trying to come up with a username for some site or other and somebody had already chosen all the ones I wanted. I got fed up, typed in 'echo' and some numbers...

I've been using it out of sheer laziness every since.

Man, am I boring...

My name is from a part of Tampa, FL called Ybor City. There's a bunch of Restuarants and Clubs, it's closed off for the most part to car traffic. Unfortunately over the years it's become a place with a lot of crime.

I now live about 40 minutes to the south but still get up to Tampa once a month or so.
